'I'd like to write a letter, instead of an email to TRUE, since he's my youngest pup just like the kind I used to save from my Dad. I know people think it's strange that I'm writing a letter to my dog, but sometimes he is the only one who will listen to me.' (Weber in the introduction).
The True in the title refers to Weber's beloved golden retriever who, along with four other doggy companions and a cat, form the innocent and child-like nucleus around which the photographer weaves a web of personal, and often political, thoughts and dreams. The cutsie cast of canines are supported by Ingmar Bergman, Vanessa Redgrave, Nina Simone, Marianne Faithfull, Pamela Anderson, Snoop Dogg (and family), Dirk Bogarde, Viggo Mortensen and Kate Moss. A film of the same name was released in 2004. It featured Elizabeth Taylor and Dirk Bogarde, and was narrated by Julie Christie and Marianne Faithfull.
